Mr. Bisbee is a native of Maine, and originally a thorough "down Easterner." He comes of Pilgrim ancestry, his first known ancestor in America coming from the northern part of England, and landing at Plymouth Rock in 1634.

Mr. Bisbee is a descendant of the son who settled in Maine. Mr. Bisbee was named for his father, Horatio Bisbee, who was a farmer. His mother's maiden name was Sarah White.
